Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos

Excellence Cluster Origins, Garching, Germany

The Excellence Cluster Origins investigates the development of the Universe from the Big Bang to the emergence of life.

The Excellence Cluster Origins uniquely combines the disciplines of astrophysics, biophysics and particle physics to search for the connection between planet formation and the formation of the first prebiotic molecules. Among other things, the scientists want to show that life is the product of a natural process, a logical outcome of the evolution of the universe - which can be understood based on the laws of physics and chemistry and the initial conditions created by the Big Bang.
